After months of speculation, it’s finally been confirmed – Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will go head to head in a much-anticipated battle on August 6. The fight will take place in the famous Madison Square Garden in New York.
The original fight was scheduled to take place in December 2021 but was canceled. Fans are already ringing for a fight and betting on who will win. But before that, let’s dive into their heights and weights and think logically about it. Check out here on HITC.
Tommy and Jake height and weight
To the surprise of some people, Jake is one inch taller than Tommy. Fury’s height is exactly 6 feet, while Paul’s height is 6 feet 1 inch.
In terms of weight, when Tommy last competed against Anthony Taylor for Jake Paul’s bottom card against Tyrone Woodley, he weighed in at 179 pounds. Meanwhile, Paul weighed 190 pounds when he last stepped on the scale.
The boys are similar in height and weight but there is also a strong possibility that by the time they compete, their weights will have changed.
Jake has already called Tommy outside
As the drama seems to have already begun, on June 22, Paul appeared to issue an ultimatum to Fury on Twitter, calling out the 22-year-old saying: “Tommy FuryWithdrew last year. So you’re agreeing to fight me now but your dad is trying to get you out again?
“We gave you everything you asked for — $2 million, a VADA test, and tampons. You have 24 hours to explain this or I won’t give you that chance again.”
This was clearly all the motivation Tommy needed as he responded quickly with a simple phrase: “See you on August 6th Pal.” Later that day, the fight was confirmed.
